Hiroyuki Kobayashi will take less to play in the US

According to Sanspo, Hiroyuki Kobayashi told reporters that while he'd like to sign on with a team as soon as possible, he also wasn't in a rush to get things done quickly and therefore wasn't planning on setting any deadlines (other than perhaps trying to find something before February, when spring camp in Japan begins).  Kobayashi is prepared to wait things out.

While Kobayashi has not received any formal offers, it appears his agent has been contacted by a number of clubs in both the US and Japan.  It appears Kobayashi is also willing to take less to play in the US.
